Pokémon Unite Release Date Set For Nintendo Switch, New Trailer And Zeraora Availability Revealed

Now that the beta periods are all a wrap, Pokémon Unite finally has a release date alongside new details about how to obtain Zeraora and a new trailer. The MOBA take on the Pokémon universe is a different sort of pivot, and now players interested can mark their calendars to check it out, because Pokémon Unite arrives on July 21 on Nintendo Switch

Following adventures like Pokémon Cafe' Mix and Pokémon Smile, Pokémon Unite continues to steer the "catch 'em all" franchise into unique directions, this time bringing some of the most iconic characters in Pokémon into a world not unlike other big MOBAs out there like League of Legends and DOTA 2. The latest trailer offers a closer look at what the game will have to offer, as well as when the cut-off is for snagging Unite license for Zeraora. Zeraora can close the distance between opponents at a drop of a hat to deal massive amounts of damage simultaneously. To get Zeraora, simply log into the Nintendo Switch version of Pokémon Unite before August 31. You'll want to grab it because its Unite move is Plasma Gale, which is basically a ginormous blast of lightning that can create a field of plasma that provides an impressive amount of AoE.

Shin Megami Tensei V Story Trailer Shows The Conflict Between Gods And Demons

Shin Megami Tensei V is among the most anticipated role-playing games scheduled for the remainder of 2021, and if the recent screenshots we shared last month didn't sate your hunger for new information, Atlus has another feast for your eyes. While we already know the basics of the story of Shin Megami Tensei V, Atlus just released a new trailer showcasing gameplay footage and the story itself.

In Shin Megami Tensei V, a third-year student of a high school in Tokyo is trapped in a tunnel collapse and pulled into a mysterious desert where he is attacked by demons. As he tries to escape, he is saved by a man named Aogami, who fuses with the protagonist to become a being known as a Nahobino. Together, the two have the power to fight against and sometimes even alongside demons. As the story progresses, the protagonist will be tasked with making difficult choices that can lead to different endings to the story.

In this strange world of Da'at, players encounter massive monsters and mythological deities, with the number of demons reaching past the 200 mark. Along the way, players will encounter a combination of classic creatures and new monsters from the mind of character designer Masayuki Doi. Over the course of the adventure, you can expect to fight and negotiate with demons like Jack Frost, Amanozako, Daimon Angel, Fionn mac Cumhaill, Mermaid, Molek, Arioch, and more.

Netflix To Reportedly Start Offering Video Games, Hires Former Head Of EA Mobile As VP Of Game Development

Earlier this year, we reported on how Netflix was looking to expand within the gaming industry further. Now it looks like they're looking beyond simply adapting them. With the streaming service on a roll in recent years with adapting video games into movies and TV series, a new report suggests that the company is looking to deal with the actual games themselves. 

In a new report from BloombergNetflix has begun the process of growth beyond the movies and television shows the service is known for. Netflix reportedly has begun efforts towards that goal, with the first major step being a new person joining the team to lead the charge. Former EA Mobile head Mike Verdu has joined the company, accepting the role of Netflix's Vice President of Game Development. The report continues saying that he will be working alongside and reporting to Greg Peters, Netflix's Chief Operating Officer. 

Also included in the plans for gaming expansion beyond offering the titles themselves are more properties being adapted into other entertainment mediums with the PlayStation Pictures partnership. We've seen Netflix put the tip of its proverbial toe into the waters of gaming documentaries, as well, and its foray into reality shows could prove to tie in with future plans at a later date. 

Diablo II: Resurrected Shares Changes Coming Out Of The Technical Alpha

Diablo II: Resurrected Shares Changes Coming Out Of The Technical Alpha

Blizzard has elaborated on some of changes they’ve made to Diablo II: Resurrected based on the Technical Alpha test period.  As you may recall, I was quite smitten with my exploratory period in the Tech Alpha, and basically kept swapping back between the old graphics and new options with the tap of a button repeatedly in awe. Again, what the Vicarious Visions team has put together for the first few acts that we’ve seen is already quite impressive. Blizzard has a larger outline and documentation of how they’re using the feedback and discoveries from that test period in a blog here that you can check out, but let’s hit some of the major beats.

First, feedback from some iconic Sorceress spells like lightning and ice storm are being retuned to capture the original design visuals and intent. Paladin’s Holy Freeze is also getting a pass on it in the same fashion. Items like potions, scrolls, and gems are getting an amplification pass to help them stand out and pop, along with weapons, quest items, and charms. This should make the stuff in your inventory stand out as you look through page after page of Stone of Jordans.

NBA 2K22 Features The First Ever WNBA Player As A Variant Cover With Candace Parker

Earlier today, we shared the NBA 2K22 reveal, including the athletes that will be gracing the covers. With the 75th anniversary of the NBA being a part of the celebration, there are a few different cover options to choose from, including some stellar artwork. Another aspect of the variants is that a WNBA player will grace a cover for the first time in NBA 2K's history. 

Candace Parker from Chicago Sky is the first to break the mold with her cover contribution, showing her in two modes: one where she can be seen smiling triumphantly as she dunks, and another where she is completely in the zone, ready to score one for the team. While the cover doesn't impact how the game itself plays, it is kind of cool to see a woman make history in the gaming space, especially as someone that absolutely loved playing basketball growing up.

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania's Remastered Stages Still Look Absurd In New Trailer

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania's Remastered Stages Still Look Absurd In New Trailer

Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania was a pleasant surprise when it premiered during last month’s Nintendo Direct. While it’s not a brand-new entry in the series, it bundles and remasters Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2, and Super Monkey Ball Deluxe for a new generation of players to enjoy. A new trailer provides a better look at how these fan-favorite stages and minigames have been polished up and gives a peek at the game’s story mode.

The trailer shows off AiAi and his pals taking the fight to the evil Dr. Bad-Boon with up to four players working together in local co-op. The video also gives a good look at how several of the classic Monkey Ball stages have been recreated in HD. Needless to say, they look a lot sharper than they did in the early ‘00s.

If you’ve never played a Monkey Ball title, the premise is deceptively simple. Guide AiAi’s ball from the beginning of a stage to the end without having him fall off, all while collecting as many bananas along the way as possible. This is easier said than done, though, due to the challenging, comically absurd design of these arenas that made the series such great party choice during its heyday.

Shrek Invades Hunt: Showdown With His House Found In New Map

Shrek has found a way to invade the world of Hunt: Showdown. While the green man himself is suspiciously missing, his home in the swamps can be seen with new DLC that has dropped for the first-person shooter. For once, the Shrek universe isn't colliding with a game due to mods, but if this inclusion feels random - it really shouldn't. Hunt: Showdown has all sorts of mythical entities, and Shrek's home has witnessed more than a few fairy tales. 

Hunt: Showdown is set in the late 180ss and tasks players with taking out various monsters they will encounter in their journey. With a setting rooted in the Louisana Bayou, the inclusion of Shrek's swamp and his house isn't as weird as it sounds, but does this mean Shrek will eventually become a bounty? Doubtful, but the mind reels just thinking of the possibilities. 

With the Beast Hunter DLC adding the new DeSalle map, YouTuber @JackFrags was quick to spot the latest update, saying: "They added Shrek's house to a video game as a cool Easter Egg!" He added a clip of his find, which you can see below:

Characters from the included franchises are also woven into the Super Robot Wars story, making it more than just smashing your favorite toys together.

Here’s the current list of mechs in Super Robot Wars 30, for those that may be curious:

When Battlefield 2042 was first announced, fans of the longstanding FPS series rejoiced. 2042 is bringing Battlefield back to its roots, bringing back the shooter to what made it stand out: the verticality freedom, the chaos, and the special tactics used. But more than that, DICE is taking 2042 a step further, ramping up that chaos factor by implementing weaponized tornadoes, dynamic weather, and so much more. Because of the blend of new and familiar, the studio has received a lot of questions regarding Battlefield 2042, questions the team is answering today. 

With a new showcase called Answering Your Reveal Questions, senior design director for Battlefield 2042, Daniel Berlin, sat down to do just that. He also offered a closer look at the various Specialists, the different maps, vehicles, and AI soldiers. He also talked a little more about the Technical Playtest going down later this Summer as well as how cross-progression and crossplay will work for 2042.
